RCA Living Stereo the gold standard for top quality orchestral performance and sound!
Heifetz playing Sibelius like no other. This 3-track transfer places Heifetz in proper proportion to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Walter Hendl (filling in for an ill Fritz Reiner). Produced by the legendary Jack Pfeiffer with Lewis Layton as the engineer it doesn't get any better than this.
"...I'd have to say that the usual stumbling blocks have been sidestepped. Great care has been taken to do the right things, starting with the way the decision to remaster these RCAs was made." - Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound.com, June 11, 2013
